Dr. Foote's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Foote "Dr. Foote is one of the few neurosurgeons in the world with fellowship training in both movement disorders neurology (Emory University) and movement disorders neurosurgery (Grenoble, France). He is a materials science engineer (U of Utah) and a specialist in stereotactic and functional neurosurgery (U of Florida). His research in the fields of deep brain stimulation (DBS) and stereotactic radiosurgery has produced over 170 peer-reviewed publications. Dr. Foote's current research focus is on novel applications of DBS technology, optimization of global DBS outcomes, and neurophysiological and micro-anatomical characterization of functional brain circuitry. His NIH-sponsored research includes projects applying and optimizing DBS therapy for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, severe tremor secondary to multiple sclerosis, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and Tourette syndrome. He is also participating in studies investigating the application of DBS to treat refractory depression and early Alzheimer's dementia, as well as investigational trials of novel DBS hardware. Since he joined the UF neurosurgery faculty in 2002, Dr. Foote has performed over 1500 deep brain stimulator lead implantation procedures. Perhaps most notably, he and his neurologist partner, Dr. Michael Okun, founded and co-direct the world-renowned University of Florida Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration. Dr. Foote has been consistently recognized among the "Best Doctors in America" and "America's Top Surgeons" and has served on the Board of Directors of the American Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery. He received the UF Neurosurgery Faculty Mentor of the Year award in 2011, and was honored by election to the American Academy of Neurological Surgery in 2012."
